The 1972 Lincoln Continental Mk IV is so classy it’s got Roman numerals in its name.
Nowadays, pimps have no imagination; they drive a black 4×4 with huge chrome wheels and tinted windows. The more adventurous will have a floor length, white fur coat and some ostentatious jewellery, but where’s the flair? And where are the flares?
Back in the ’70s, superfly guy was rollin’ low in a 2 door Lincoln with hidden headlights, a trunk lid shaped around the spare tire and opera windows in the B pillar. Now chase-cars puts you in the driving seat with the 1:32 scale Lincoln Continental.
If you want to try painting buttoned velour seats I’m not going to stop you, and you can go crazy with the colour scheme too, mine was cream over burgundy which highlights the chrome nicely. You can choose your own way of being Huggy Bear’s cooler cousin.
